    So I have discovered that my fuel tap isnt working the hard way yesterday.....
    Got a front puncture and obviously there is no center stand so the easiest option was to lay the bike on a side and work on the wheel. The fuel started dripping through the carb breather hose so i close that off. Then it started leaking a substantial amount through the airbox and air filter. Not only it was dangerous but also wouldnt let me fix my flat.
    Fortunately I was with my mate so he helped me balance the bike on some rocks

    Is this faulty tap a reason for missing fuel? I didnt ride my bike for about 2-3months in the summer and when I finally did I have noticed that the consumption was about 40% higher. I think the petrol might have just evaporated through the carb

    That doesn't make sense because the floats and needle should stop the passing of fuel. I would look at the petcock, floats, & needle. replacing all 3 should be less than 100 RMB. Shitty China gas could have caused problems.

    I would be more worried about the gas that didn't come out of the airbox and headed into your cylinder via the intake valves.

    Well, after the whole thing the bike starter and ran fine. I will replace the petcock and check the float and needle. And will replace the oil as it prolly has fuel in it, although I just did that 500km ago
